WNCAA 2012 Cheerdance Competition

This time of the year is always the most stressful and exciting time for Anissa. The 2 big annual competitions happen in February and March. First up is the WNCAA Cheerdance Competition happening this afternoon! With less than 6 hours of sleep, I got up to make sure she was prepared to meet her 630am call time in school. The competition officially starts at 1pm but the team always has to do a tech run at the venue.

The rest of us are scheduled to follow at 11am, to make sure we secure the most convenient seats at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium. Today is also the anniversary of the EDSA Revolution and I'm so glad we're traveling in the opposite direction!

I shared this prayer to Anissa's coach this morning via SMS, hoping he can lead the team later in praying it ...

Lord Jesus, we welcome your presence here. Today, we gather
to represent our school. Share with us your spirit of peace
and love for one another. Bless us with a team spirit of good
will, both for ourselves and the teams we will face. Help us to be
the best we can possibly be, to strive not so much to win, as to play fairly and well.
Draw us close together as a team and a group of friends who reflect
your spirit of love. We ask this in your name, Lord Jesus.
